    Correct! It's the Great Ziggurat of Ur, ancient temple of the mesopotamian moon god.

    Aren't there any non-antisemitic pictures to encode your first part? I don't think I will participate in a riddle that uses antisemitic stereotypes lightly.

    Re: Historical Who Am I Riddles

    Abdül is right, it is Piero Capponi. Piero the Unfortunate does not fit because he did not openly defy the French as described in the Poem.

    Capponi was the leader of the Florentines when Charles...

    Re: Historical Who Am I Riddles

    No, Soderini is a bit later (and allied with the French). There are definitely too many Pieros in Renaissance Florence.

    The last line of the poem should help to identify the right Piero.

    That's the wrong Piero. Piero de Medici sucked up to the French, while the Piero I am looking for did quite the opppsite (see the last two lines).
